Gregory L. Smith discusses apologetics, plural marriage, and maintaining faith in the face of difficult questions in this first episode of the new FAIR Podcast with host Blair Hodges. Latter-day Saints who struggle with difficult historical information about the Church will be interested in his reaction to difficult subjects including plural marriage.
Smith received a medical degree (after also studying physiology and English) at the University of Alberta. He completed his medical residency in Montréal, Québec before becoming an “old-style country doctor” in rural Alberta. His interests include internal medicine and psychiatry.
Previously, Smith has spoken to the Miller-Eccles study group on the topic of plural marriage. He’s also published several articles in the FARMS Review and edited countless FAIRwiki pages. His 2009 FAIR Conference presentation, “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Plural Marriage* (*but were afraid to ask),” can be read here.

This is great! I’ve been hoping for a long time that FAIR would do a podcast. I hope that it will be linked to ITunes so that updates may be automatically updated and so that a wider audience can potentially become aware of its existence.
Steve, we’re currently working on getting an iTunes link. Thanks!
I’ve been listening to a bunch of Van Hale episodes lately – and he’s had some very interesting episodes with some great authors and guests. If you pick the right episode, they can be very interesting. I’m excited about the potential here. Hopefully you guys do this well.
I’ll wait until I see the iTunes link. I already have too many podcasts to listen to!
Aaron R. says
When the itunes link goes up. I’m in! Good luck with this.
John Larsen says
Wow! Congratulations guys. I look forward to hearing your podcasts. I think you will find it to be a rewarding experience.
Let me know if you need help getting set up with itunes and such.
An RSS feed is needed for us anti-apple people. You know, 90% of the US population.
Please make a separate post when the iTunes link is up and ready to go. I don’t want to keep checking this one link. And I won’t remember to check iTunes. But as of today, I still don’t see it.
If you grab this feed URL (http://www.fairblog.org/feed/) many Podcast apps will read the MP3 files from the post and download them for you. I’m doing so with MediaMonkey right now.
Thanks for doing this podcast. I really enjoyed listening to it. I look forward to hearing many more FAIR podcasts.

Thank you. I’ll be looking for more. Almost any topic in the archives would make for a good talk in a podcast.
